Amitabh and Jaya Bhaduri have been married for 40 years. They co-starred in films such as Guddi, Zanjeer and Abhimaan. Today, after 40 fruitful years, this marriage has remained equally powerful and productive. Not even the most influential rumours of the Amitabh-Rekha affair might damage this rock-solid union.

Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri were married in 1991 after a six-year courtship. A failing actor hopelessly falls for a child, a Muslim family, and a girl from a Hindu family. A six-year affair coupled with the girl's family's powerful resistance eventually culminated in a marriage. The marriage would become a benchmark of affection and fidelity with time. Dilwale took Dulhania away from her home in Babul to be with SRK.

Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar

Mr Khiladi married Twinkle Khanna in 2001. The couple made two films together. Both films didn't do well at the box office but gave rise to one of Bollywood's most famous marriages, which took place in 2001 and is still getting stronger with each passing day.

An extroverted and high-spirited female goes head-over-heels for an introverted kid! Yes, you read it right! We name it "the lure between opposites." And that's what happened to Ajay Devgn and Kajol. These two love-birds tied a knot in 1999 and are now the proud parents of two lovely children.
